Rise to Fame at Nordic Game!!

Posted on May 7th, 2017

Nordic Game conference is an annual event for the game industry professionals. NG17 will be held from 17th to 19th May at Slagthuset in Malmö, Sweden. Over 2,000 professionals are expected to join the event. Nordic Game is the one and only “home turf” meeting place for the highly successful game developers of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

The best in the industry will join the event as speakers. Among the speakers will be Aleissia Laidacker (was lead AI on multiple Assassin’s Creed games), Charlie Bewsher (design director on Halo Wars 2), Fumito Ueda (Game creator of ICO, Shadow of the Colossus and The Last Guardian), Oskar Burman (has lead the Rovio studio behind Angry Birds 2) and many others.

Nordic Game Fast Track sessions will be short and precise talks between the game developers and audience. If you have some topic for the Fast Track you can also send your proposal (as per the specifications mentioned on the website) at jacob@nordicgame.com.

If you are a developer in need of some investments or an investor looking for a promising talent, Investing in Games will make your work a lot easier. Developers pitch their games and global venture capital investors are there to support them. Also, Meet to Match will throw innumerable business networking opportunities at you. Register for the event and schedule short, face to face meetings with the people you would like to do business with.

The Nordic Game Expo will display the latest innovations in games and will offer you a great platform for learning and networking. Nordic Game Social Events will be dedicated to networking and fun. Last year had 9 such events. One of the events in 2017 will be the IGDA Finland Party on the first day of the event. The list of all the events is yet to be released.

Nordic Game Awards are organised by the Nordic Game Institute in cooperation with Nordic Game Resources and the Nordic Game conference. It will be interesting to have a look at the last year’s winners in various categories like the below Nordic Game of the Year 2016.
